“I’m so happy and grateful to remain with the only MLB franchise I’ve ever known and the people I love working with," Freed said. “There’s going to be so many good things happening with this team, and I can’t wait to experience it with the fans and our entire region."

Freed and Wills were hired for the 2005 season, and besides building a strong following among Rays fans, are among MLB’s most tenured tandems. Pre- and post-game host Neil Solondz has been the third member of their team since 2012.
